Don't bother going inside the orangerie. Stay in the park; it's much better. A peaceful walk with interesting vistas around each corner. Surprising given the small space the location occupies. A good shortcut to the city.

The Botanical Garden (Jardin Botanique/Kruidtuin) is just off Rue Royale/Koningstraat and close to Botanique metro and tram stops. However, it's a quiet little oasis with pretty formal gardens, sculptures, a greenhouse, lake, and nooks to explore and relax with a picnic. It's close to several large hotels and provides a peaceful escape from rushing about. You can enter from the... More

A great space open to the public, lots of weddings photographs take place here, so it's a lovely venue to have a stroll through.

We stayed at the Hilton, and stumbled into the park as we were walking through the city. It's small and lovely. Provided a leafy respite in a busy touristy day! Encourage you to do the same!

My wife and I spent a pleasurable hour walking these gardens. The plants are well kept and the statues are beautiful. A small criticism: we would have had a drink (coffee, tea, wine or beer) in the cafe / restaurant, but prices were not clearly displayed. So we walked back to the shopping area for lunch. Well worth a visit.

Worth the short walk from Madou - our home away from home. Beautiful gardens and ponds great place for a brief picnic. Didn't care much for the July exhibit indoors.

We went here because it was outside of our hotel. A nice walk, 20 mins is enough for a couple of pictures and a cool off but it can be hot near the middle of the day.

Being in this part of Europe, I would have expected much more from a botanical building. Instead, it was drab and dreary, without plants. The surrounding parkland was pleasant, but nothing special, worth walking through if you are in the area, but not worth making a side trip for
